MixEngineerAlias

Purpose

Mixing engineers (the people who are responsible for the final mix down immediately before cutting to vinyl) often add their name to the run out grooves of vinyl. They play a role in the feeling of the sound, but they are rarely credited anywhere other than this tag or logo. This page hopes to keep a small list of who each alias is.

Alias Real Name Style Other Notes
Simon - The Exchange Simon Davey Drum & Bass -
Beau Beau Thomas Drum & Bass Current engineer for Heathman's in London
Stu (with a stylized S) Stuart Hawkes Stuart Hawkes Metropolis
Nats + Jamie Jack Adams Drum & Bass Used to work for Heathmans, left around 2005. Nats handled booking, and did not engineer.

Discussion

I may be wrong, but why don't you create these artists in MB, then link them with the AdvancedRelationship EngineerRelationshipType (with the specific type Mixed) to the releases? Aliases (and annotations) could then be added to the artists. -- murdos 16:53, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

  • Hey murdos, I am doing that, but for aliases that haven't been entered etc, this page is a good way to keep track of stuff. If it's un-necessary, feel free to delete it though! -- OliverCharles
